Accessible Beach Access Routes Free webinar Wednesday, June 28, 2017 from 1-2PM
June 13, 2017
It’s that time of year that many of us take advantage of the summer weather and “head to the shore” for some R&R. This webinar will review the scoping and technical requirements for beach access routes from the ABA Outdoor Developed Areas Final Rule. While the 2010 ADA Standards for Accessible Design do not directly address access to beaches, there are still Program Accessibility obligations to consider (for beaches maintained by state/local government entities) that require that programs and activities offered by public entities must be accessible to people with disabilities. This webinar will review the ADA’s requirements that apply to beach access routes in national parks and other outdoor areas developed by the federal government, as they can be a useful tool for ADA covered entities that are looking for best practice guidance related to beach access routes.
